Hatboro Crew Lends Hands in Haiti

A team of Hatboro and Upper Moreland volunteers set out for Haiti through nonprofit organization Heart 9/11. Their mission: to build a firehouse.

A team of Hatboro and Upper Moreland volunteers departed last week for Haiti with the goal of building a firehouse in seven days.

Many on the team have traveled to Haiti on previous missions trips with nonprofit organization HEART 9/11. Former Hatboro Councilwoman Nancy Guenst, whose husband Steve and daughter, Andrea Myers are among the nine locals in Haiti, said Hatboro architects The Omnia Group donated their time to putting together designs and drawings for the firehouse construction. 

Also on the trip are Rick McHale, Jeff Preston and his son Ryan, Mike Ostrander with his wife Aleta and son Michael Jr., and Eric Robertson of Enterprise Fire Co.

The firehouse build makes this the 18th trip HEART 9/11 has made to Haiti assisting the people in urban Port-Au-Prince and in the mountain community of Fond Parisien. HEART 9/11 is an all-volunteer disaster response organization founded in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
